Hi Everybody,

I come from Zen backgrounds, been a Theravadin since more than a decade. I used to be rather devoted, or obsessive practicioner - even a monk wannabe at times. I had luck to practice with some great teachers, did lot of retreats, etc. Now, as I got older, my practice suffered a bit - or it's just anicca. I'm stuck with covid isolation & family duties, but thanks to our ancient Path it's not so bad, even good at times - one gets less distracted.

I was reading this board for years and it've became my virtual Sangha somehow. Especially since I moved to a new country and got separated from my Damma friends. I would like to express my gratitude to the makers and members of Dhamma Wheel for your countless posts, shared experiences, sutta refferences and download links. For example, I ' ve learned about "Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree" by Buddhadasa Bhikkhu here, a truly wonderful book. So thanks again! :bow: :anjali: Perhaps I will post something useful, too.
